February 25, 2020

We strongly believe in the power of containers for embedded development at Foundries.io. However, in a world of buzzword bingo like Kubernetes, serverless, and Edge, people working on 32 bit Arm hardware would be right to feel neglected. This article discusses one way we are helping: building armhf containers efficiently.

FoundriesFactory: Modern tooling for Embedded Linux

By Tyler Baker in fota

November 18, 2019

The days of building monolithic embedded Linux systems are coming to an end. Security vulnerabilities, both on the software and hardware side are driving the embedded industry to adopt new ways to develop these systems. The writing has been on the walls for a while now, and this shift away from monolithic applications to microservices has been happening in the cloud for many years. The “internet of things” and “edge” computing have brought cloud developers closer to embedded systems than ever before.

Using docker-compose.yml with Portainer

By Alan Bennett in microPlatform

May 8, 2018

Portainer has been a great asset and we have started to rely on it for single-container image management. Unfortunately, Portainer has been designed for 2 key use-cases. single containers and “stacks” that are meant to be deployed onto Kubernetes or Swarm orchestrators. For many of our demos we want to manage a suite of containers and orchestrate their startup so we can manage large container suites like the 9+ container-based micro-services that comprise the Edge-X project.
